About the Book

This graphic novel tracks the first year of Bonnie and Clyde’s extraordinary crime spree. Beginning in April 1932 in Texas, an accelerating path of robberies and shoot-outs made the duo infamous. These pages reveal what drove Clyde Barrow to become so hardened, unrepentant and relentlessly violent. And what drove Bonnie, repeatedly, in spite of her best interest, to Clyde’s side. Culminating in April 1933 in Missouri, the scene fades with the shoot-out that left a detective and police chief dead and Bonnie and Clyde at the brink of national notoriety.

Book Reviews & Awards

  • “Showing the nonglamorous side of living outside the law, Jeffrey’s chronicle serves as a compelling counterweight to myths of Bonnie and Clyde as attractive and successful criminals. A sure bet for true crime buffs and students of Depression–era history”—Library Journal
